We strongly recommend that organizations complete this checklist before attending the Board Fair on May 18. To help prepare, here are some useful Board Fair Recruiting Materials.

As an organization…

  • We have discussed our recruiting needs for new board positions and volunteers
  • We have a board member job description or documented roles & responsibilities
  • We have a clear process for getting to know and assess new board candidates and volunteers

  • We are ready with other opportunities for people to get involved, such as committee positions, pro bono services, advisory roles, volunteering, etc.

CBCA will send additional details about the Board Fair (what to bring, where to park, etc.) two weeks before the event. Don’t hesitate to contact Rachael Henney at rhenney@cbca.org if you have questions in the meantime.
